My Books

Screen Shot 2016-03-09 at 8.47.26 AMI have been studying, researching, blogging, writing, and giving tours on Civil War Franklin and the Battle of Franklin for over 15 years.I’ve been a student of the Civil War in general for over 30 years. My bookshelves, file cabinets, and Evernote and DropBox folders are completely filled with my work, collections, writings, etc.

Since I do not earn my living as a professional historian I have chosen not to emphasize publishing my work in traditional book format, yet. However, I’m often asked if any of my studies, writings, or presentations are available for download or in eBook format. Fortunately the answer is ‘yes.
